If you want a great way to exercise, cross-train or just have fun, the Invacare Top End Excelerator handcycle is just what you're looking for. Extremely stable and maneuverable, the Invacare Top End Excelerator handcycle is capable of speeds up to 15 mph and can tackle hills or level terrain with equal ease.
The Top End® Excelerator™ is available in 3 seat widths: 16, 18 or 20 inches and ready to ship. Handcycling is a great way to have fun, get fit and stay active so you can enjoy life to the fullest – so get cranking.
• This upright and extremely maneuverable three-wheel handcycle is capable of speeds up to 15 mph.
• Smooth seven-speed Shimano® hub with its reversing drum brake delivers hands-on braking and allows the rider to tackle hills or level terrain with equal ease.
• Options include: the popular mountain drive, which adds 7 extra low gears for climbing hills or the V crankset option with its wider cranks to allow more clearance for those who are tall or require additional space.
*This chair ships fully assembled.
If you are looking for more options, such as frame colors or crank set length, please consider the Top End Excelerator Custom.
- Seat Depth1
- Measure from the most posterior point of the body to the inside of the knee, minus at least two inches. Optimal contact between the legs and the seat increases stability for the body.
- Back Height2
- Measured from the seat base to the top of the chair back. Sport users need enough height for upper body support, yet low enough to allow the arms and trunk to rotate freely.
- Rear Seat to Floor3
- Measurement from the ground to the rear seat edge. Relative to the front seat-to-floor dimension, this determines the rearward slope ("dump" or "squeeze") of the seat. Sport chairs usually have more dump for extra upper body stability.
- Hanger Angle4
- Determines how far the toes extend away from the body, measured from the horizontal. Sport users often use very tight angles to be able to rotate in the smallest possible space.
- Seat Width5
- Determined by the widest point of the body from knee to hip, plus an inch to ensure room to move. Sport chairs are typically as narrow as possible to save weight which improves agility.
- Wheel Camber6
- Angle of the wheel relative to the vertical. More camber improves stability and agility, but also limits ability to pass through narrow spaces. A typical sport chair uses nine to twelve degrees of camber.
- Front Seat to Floor7
- Measure the leg from the back of the knee to the sole of the foot. Then subtract the thickness of the cushion when it is compressed. Next, add a minimum of two inches for footrest clearance. Do not add the footrest clearance if the chair will be foot-propelled.
- Footrest Width8
- Measure from the inside of each legrest tubing the distance or desired distance between legrests.
- Center of Gravity9
- Measure from the front of the seat back post to the center of the rear axel.
- Seat to Footrest Length10
- Measure from the edge of the seat upholstery to the top rear of the footrest.
- Backrest Angle11
- Measure the the angle of the back post to the floor. Ninety degrees will be perpendicular to the floor, to approximate the angle from the back post to the seat, subtract two degrees from measurment for every .5" of dump.
